“Evil Games” by Angela Marsons
The greater the Evil, the more deadly the game…
When a rapist is found mutilated in a brutal stabbing, Detective Kim Stone and her team are called in to bring a swift resolution. But as further disturbing events come to light, it soon becomes clear that there is someone even more sinister at work.
With the investigation gathering momentum, whilst also trying to expose the secrets of a sick paedophile ring, Kim finds herself in the sights of a lethal individual undertaking their own twisted experiment.
Pitted against a dangerous sociopath who seems to know her every weakness, for Detective Stone, each move she makes could be deadly. As the body count starts to mount, Kim will have to dig deeper than ever before to stop the killing. And this time – it’s personal.
The rising star of the British thriller scene returns with a novel that will enthrall fans of Rachel Abbott, Val McDermid and Mark Billingham.

What readers are saying about “Evil Games”:
“Angela Marsons has done it again! Evil Games is an absolutely cracking, five-star read – I devoured it in one sitting. Kim Stone has rapidly become one of my favourite ever detectives, and in this second novel in the DI Stone series she kicks ass more than ever, and I have, once again, been left panting in the corner in dire need of a cup of tea!” Reading Room with a View
“I’m a little bit speechless to be honest at just how incredible this book was…one of the best new crime authors of 2015, maybe even the decade… Evil Games is a must read book, and probably one of the best I will read this year.” Book Addict Shaun
“Silent Scream (Book 1) was quite brilliant. Evil Games (Book 2) is EXCEPTIONAL. Clearly, the current rating system is broken as it’s unable to accommodate books of this calibre. So I give you –6/5” LittleBookness Lane
“Evil Games is a clever, action-packed journey into some of society’s darkest places, crackling with tension and wit. And DI Kim Stone is the most fascinating character to arrive on the scene since Val McDermid gave us Tony Hill. This is a no-brainer. Read Evil Games. You won’t regret it.” Mark Edwards
“Evil Games is a fabulously dark and chilling read…I am a huge fan of D.I. Kim Stone and can’t recommend this series highly enough.” By the Letter Book Reviews
“Yet again Angela Marsons has written a 5* crime novel. I loved Silent Scream… Evil Games is certainly as good as the first, if not better, and I wish I could give it a higher rating than 5/5” Off the Shelf Book Reviews
“Once again, Angela Marsons takes us into the life of the brilliant loner DI Kim Stone and gives us an exciting, slightly chilling and totally thrilling read. This is one book that exceeded all of my expectations… Get yourself ready to take a day off and immerse yourself in this book. It is worth it.” Northern Crime
“Angela Marsons is fast becoming THE one to watch in this genre and I would defy anyone not to read and enjoy her writing… She truly has a brilliant mind and this book did not disappoint … This story has everything, it is riveting, emotional, sad and most of all it has a depth that not many novels can claim to have… I highly recommend this one, Simply brilliant.” Postcard Reviews
“This book, with every page you turn gives you goose bumps. I could feel the hairs on the back of my neck standing up and I just didn’t want to put it down. It’s fantastically written, it’s gripping right to the last page and I just can’t wait for book three now.” It’s All About the Books

What people are saying about Number One Bestselling author Angela Marsons:
“I absolutely loved it! … This one is one of the best crime thrillers I’ve read in a long time, and that includes mainstream authors such as James Patterson!” Fiona’s Book Reviews
“I don’t think I’ve been so hooked by a new author since the discovery of Mark Edwards or Mark Billingham… if you finish a crime thriller feeling like you just need to have a lie-down and a cup of tea to get your breath back, then the writer has done their job. Angela Marsons, I still don’t have my breath back.” Reading Room with a View
“Angela is already on my list of favourite female writers, she is up there with Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt… Leigh Russell and Karen Long.” Crime Book Club
“I have not been so impressed by a debut novel in a long time, and I’m actually now itching for more …D.I. Kim Stone is like the British Jane Rizzoli. She’s so ballsy and doesn’t understand the meaning of the word no.” Leah Loves
“The only problem Angela now faces is keeping up this standard as the series progresses, but if she does than she’s going to be an author to watch and a huge star within the genre.” Book Addict Shaun
“It’s highly unusual for me to find a book that leads me to put my life on hold. But Angela Marson’s Silent Scream has led me to virtually abandon work for the last day, even with deadlines looming.” Off the Shelf
